Mayor

This real-life political saga and dark comedy follows Musa Hadid, the Christian mayor of Ramallah, the de-facto capital of Palestine, during his second term in office. His immediate goals: repave the sidewalks, attract more tourism, and plan the city’s Christmas celebrations. His ultimate mission: to end the occupation of Palestine. Rich with detailed observation and a surprising amount of humor, Mayor offers a portrait of dignity amidst the madness and absurdity of endless occupation while posing a question: how do you run a city when you don’t have a country? In English, Arabic, and Hebrew. (89 mins)
